Fire Your Soul To Purpose Through Guilt
There are two kinds of guilt: the kind that drowns you until you’re useless, and the kind that fires your soul to purpose. Guilt is not a response to anger; it is a response to one’s own actions or lack of action. If it leads to change then it can be useful, since it is then no longer guilt but the beginning of knowledge. Yet all too often, guilt is just another name for shame, for defensiveness destructive of communication; it becomes a device to protect ignorance and the continuation of things the way they are, the ultimate protection for changelessness.
